I forgot about Fang Island. That would be midway up my list.

If you like Orange Juice, you'll probably dig this album. Lying Around by Magic Bullets.

I'm behind on a fair amount of listening I want to do, but my top five albums thus far are:

1. Alcest: Ecailles De Lune
2. Les Discrets: Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées
3. Crowded House: Intriguer
4. God Is An Astronaut: Age Of The Fifth Sun
5. Orphaned Land: The Neverending Way of OrWarrior

It's going to take a lot to dislodge Alcest from #1. New Agalloch may do it, if they manage to get an album out this year.

1. Vampire Weekend
2. Vampire Weekend
3. Vampire Weekend

First, their music is flat-out sick. Second, they're Ivy League graduates (first mainstream band ever that can claim this, no?) - I know that in many people's books, such a pedigree for musicians deserves only scorn, but given that they're classically-trained musicians and English majors, the result is some of the BEST orchestral arrangements I've ever heard in rock/pop, and easily some of the best lyrics. And then, on top of everything, they play Afro-pop, AND produce all their own songs! Easily the most "next level" band of the last 20 years. Men among boys, compared to other bands.

Appreciate

Ever.
Wow. Really? I don't think it's that bad.

Vampire Weekend may be one of the worst bands I've ever had the misfortune of hearing.

If they're men among boys, why was I wearing the singer's sunglasses when I was 6?

Lol. Well, Wayfarers were fashionable in the 50's and 60's, and then again in the 80's, and then again now in the naughts. JFK was probably saying the same thing when you were wearing them as a child... "hey I wore those 20 years ago"

I think he was actually saying: "I hope that hottie in the miniskirt jumps over me--I'll bet she's not wearing panties."

It hasn't been listed yet so I feel I have to mention Here Lies Love, the David Byrne and Fatboy Slim collaboration. I highly recommend it.

Afro-Pop? What? No. Produce their own songs? Big fucking wow.

They're overrated. Occasionally catchy songs scattered over two albums, that's it.

The new !!! album is pretty good; and Delays, as usual, made one of my favorite records of the year, if not the favorite.
